Search Form

Welcome to the SkyServer search form!

The search form is the easiest way to search the SkyServer database. The form uses menus to simulate an English sentence describing your request. The form then "translates" your request into SQL (a language that programmers use to search databases). You can then submit the request to SkyServer to get a table of matching results, or submit the request to the Image List tool to see what objects match your request.

You can see the Search Form User Guide or tutorial by clicking the first two links below, or click the third link to jump right in!
